Just hours before tonight’s Democratic presidential debate is set to take place in Iowa, 2020 Democratic front-runner Joe Biden released a powerful new campaign ad mocking President Donald Trump for his obsession with the former vice president.
The ad, which was posted on Biden’s Twitter account, speaks directly to Trump, asking him:
“Why are you so obsessed with me, Mr. President?”

The ad begins with video of Trump repeatedly mentioning Biden, followed by a voice-over which states:
“Donald Trump has made it clear.
“He’s got Joe Biden on his mind. Because Trump knows Biden will beat him in Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin – the states we need to take back the presidency.”
Seconds later, there’s a reminder that Biden has accomplished what Trump can only dream of doing:
“Joe Biden stood on the world stage, helped make Obamacare the law of the land, and can step in on day one.
“It’s why Trump can’t stop talking about Joe Biden”
Reaction on Twitter was immediate:
Plain and simple…Jealous of you

Trump gets obsessed with people…Rosie O’Donnell, Hillary Clinton, Barrack Obama, to name a few they seem to live in his head eating away at the few brain cells he has left, if he has any left at all that is
